Excerpt of article text...

In this article we combine the power of the MBS ChartDirector Plugin with the MBS DynaPDF Plugin. Since ChartDirector library added PDF support in version 6, we can export a chart not just to image formats and SVG, but also get vector graphics to PDF format.

Than we can load the PDF page with the chart into a template for DynaPDF and place it on PDF pages. We can scale the chart on the page to the desired size.
